RUGBY LEAGUE: More sil­ver­ware is head­ing to Dalby, af­ter one of our ju­nior rugby league side col­lected a huge vic­tory on Satur­day.

The un­de­feated Dalby Devils un­der-12 team was vic­to­ri­ous over Broth­ers in the grand fi­nal, to be­come back-to-back pre­miers.

The Devils looked like a premier­ship team from kick-off.

They scored three first-half tries to take a 16-0 lead into the break.

The Dalby side con­tin­ued to ap­ply the pres­sure to the op­po­nents in the sec­ond-half.

Dalby put the re­sult be­yond doubt with a try in the first minute of the sec­ond half.

Dalby was out to a 26-0 lead with seven minutes re­main­ing, when Broth­ers went over for a con­so­la­tion try.

The vic­tory caps off a pair of bril­liant sea­sons for the young side.

The Devils also played an­other grand fi­nal on Satur­day, with the un­der-11/12 De­vel­op­ment Cup team play­ing against Gat­ton.

The first half was tightly con­tested, with both teams show­ing off their at­tack­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Both teams scored three tries in the first half, as Dalby went into the break up 18-16.

But Gat­ton came out in the sec­ond half all guns blaz­ing, and quickly raced out to a lead the Devils could not peg back.

The loss, how­ever, has not taken any shine off the side’s per­for­mances this sea­son.
